I'll post a little more about where we stayed soon - oh, but it was gorgeous.
The reason for the retreat was the birthday celebration of my friend Duncan, who lives on said island, who I've known almost half my life, from when he was a skinny 15 year old who came visiting my friends and I on his bike, charming our mums out of cups and tea and cake. My mum is still a bit in love with him.
There was an amazing party on Saturday night with dancing, dance-offs and d... um. Diet coke with rum in it?
Dress - Boohoo
Clutch - eBay
Boots & Necklace - Dorothy Perkins
Tights - Tesco
Hairclip - H&M Kids
I wore this dress from Boohoo, which I bought at the same time as this one. It's too small, which I wish I'd realised earlier, as that's something of an issue in a dress with a sheer panel. A couple of days of nomming fried food didn't improve matters much. But hopefully a few weeks of rediscovering the merits of salad (and getting back on my diet plan) will help that!
The highlight of the night was the dance-off I mentioned - Duncan vs. a 9 year old. The 9 year old won.
It was an amazing night and an amazing weekend - just what I needed after a bit of a stressful start to 2012 - which I've certainly noticed in my blog, I'm struggling to just post a frock every Friday at the moment! I'm hoping to have a bit more time soon - I'm spending the weekend hanging with Hayley and lots of other bloggers at LFW (well, around LFW - I was too lazy to apply for any shows!) so I'm sure I'll have lots of photos and stories to share next week!
